Bottle. Rather clear reddish body with a lacing off-white head. Aroma has some nice citric fruit with some malt, bread and hint of caramel. Flavor is medium sweet malt, citric fruity, hont of caramel and decent bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. A tasty, refreshing beer with a good balance between malt and hops, but something seems to be missing for a higher score, might be a need for just a little bit more alcohol here. The potential is bigger than just a thirst quencher. Nonshaugen (667) - Fetsund, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2017
50 cl, bottle conditioned, batch #237. Quite clear, dark brown to mahogany colour, thick beige head, wonderful lacing, rich carbonation. Not much aroma is detected through that heavy foam, but all in all it smells fruity. Mouthfeel is fizzy, way too carbonated. Tastes of fruits, caramel and roasted malts, but it's disturbed by the heavy carbonation. Which is a shame, really, it looked so promising to begin with. Nine months in the bottle kill my hopes for a delicious beer experience... RickFifty (1399) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2017

Bottle. A hazy one, dark brown in color and with a dense, finger-thick beige head leaving lacing. It’s rather hoppy on the nose, piney and resiny, with a touch of citrus zest. Caramel and bread too. It’s full-bodied and smooth on the palate, with lots of bitterness. Licorice hints, bread, orange zest, pine cones and grapefruit. And even more bitterness. Lasting finish with bitterness, citrus zest and some notes of bread and toffee. Quite delicious this one, love the bitterness level. Too many beers these days lack bitterness. 170310 Holmen1 (6574) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2017
Flaske fra Gulating Stavanger, delt med Ovesen etter endt brygging: mørk rødbrun med særdeles flott skum som varer. Myk og innsmigrende aroma av furunål, harpiks, tropiske frukter og karamell. Smaken like lekker, og røde bær dukker etter hvert diskret opp. En overraskende godbit i butikkstyrke. Meget balansert, flott munnfølelse som avsluttes med en delikat bitterhet.
